There has never been a more exciting time to be a quilter or a lover of beautiful quilts. In the past quarter century, the quilt community has expanded in both style and technique, giving birth to a diverse and exciting new category of quilts. This book presents a sampling of the considerable talent present in the Art Quilt community today. Accompanied by 270 color images, fifty-one quilters share their love of the craft and encourage others in the field of textile art by offering design and technique tips. Design processes include color play, alternative fiber, threadwork, and embellishments. This book is a great resource for quilt lovers, textile collectors, and design students.
